Helping to provide clean water and jobs to people in need around the world.

Q:

Favorite place to get outside?

Cruising in my van and surfing anywhere.

 

Q:

What’s your why?

A:

My goal in life is simple. I want to leave this world in better shape than it was when I arrived. To me this means protecting the environment and empowering people so they can live fulfilling lives. I’m motivated to provide clean water to children in need so they have an opportunity to live a healthy life and pursue their dreams. This is what gets me out of bed in the morning and keeps fire in my eyes.

My fiancé, Emily, inspires me everyday to be a better man, to have patience, and to never give up on my dreams.

Lobster tacos on Kauai
